Taking the best elements of the old school titan, and dragging it right up to 2015 kicking and screaming, long time wordsmith Invokal (the Speech Urchin) and producer/DJ extraordinaire Tones have crafted an album of the highest calibre. Diverse, hard, and in places ridiculously catchy, they delve into the emotions of 21st century life, and marry it with beats and cuts that even the best will be envious of. Like a library crossed with an art gallery, in hip hop form. Get Up, Get Stressed is set to be one of 2015's most interesting releases.

"Breathtakingly original." - Wordplay Magazine
"Polished to perfection." - Underground HH

Featuring star performances from some of the UK's most talented musicians and vocalists, the album takes the listener on a journey through the modern musical mean streets and perplexing pasts. Political pondering, emotional etchings, layered lyricism and beastly beats. Invokal uses his rhetoric and repertoire to great advantage. Singing, MCing and spoken wording his way through Tones' intelligently and beautifully crafted production. The album cleverly brings a collection of diverse tracks into a complete listening experience with skits and samples to stand up at the front line and die for.

Riding high on the wave of their debut single and sci-fi extravaganza with Truw Media... 'U.F.O - United Flowing Orators' a science fiction hip hop b-movie, the authors are proud to present: Broken Authors - Get Up, Get Stressed.
